    If I comment will I still get derision and be accused of having an emotional attachment to the "Accord" name? :lol: :HobbyHorse:

    Yet again the reports state the facts.

    I heard an ad on the radio the other day from Honda thanking people for voting them the UK's most reliable brand for the 8th year running in the WhatCar? survey.

    Surely this is not such a good claim to boast about given that it is a vote? I'd've thought it would've been a far better accomplishment to shout proudly about reliability rankings based on cold, hard reliability facts and figures rather than votes as a vote will always be subject to skewing due to peoples' individual perceptions.

    If the figures for each breakdown per 1,000 vehicles for example are used this gives a far harder case to back up reliability figures as facts and figures speak for themselves.

    Not wanting to appear to take anything away from Honda, it's a remarkable achievement but publishing reliability information based on real world facts and figures would surely carry more weight.

    :BooYeah:I can only endorse the survey, my 7th Generation accord did 145,000 trouble free miles before being changed for my present accord which has now done 31,000 miles in it's first year.
    My wife's MX5 is a delight to drive and has been totally reliable over the last 4 years of daily use. It really is true it puts a smile on your face every time you drive it.

    This is exactly why I WILL NOT move from Japanese cars. They just do not go wrong. Attention to detail and engineering quality is second to none. :Hooray:

    It was good to see Honda adverts announcing this plastered all over double pages of the national broadsheet,s advertising hoardings, TV and radio today though :party::Hooray::beer

    Hang on that isn't the case though is it? :Epic Fail: If it was there would be a danger they would sell more cars, get them selves out of the current rut :Hooray: and we can't have that now, can we?

    As you know my hand is being forced at work to get a company car. I had a lex auto lease guy come in to get me my executive motor.. So I was primed the fact his leather case will be primed with geerman curd. I shot him down in seconds where the Honda brochure his expression was a picture... What does that tell you
